Synopsis Another great Saturday chat with Pierre. We did three dreams, and in between, we discussed the nature of counter-attacks (see Pierre's book on Philosophical Midwifery), the nature of the pathologos, cultural/national pathologoses, and the death of Socrates (in the Phaedo). Dream Texts JulieH's Dream - March 30 2019 I’m at a college and I’ve just come into the room of this man who's apparently the teacher of a class and my job is to teach this topic. He’s taken some kind of...

Synopsis Saturday chats are always lovely with Pierre. But they don't get much better than this. We consider the spiritual meaning of Homer's Iliad with Pierre's careful dialoguing with us, all starting from a question that Maria brought in. Just lovely, lovely philosophy. Keep in mind, as “ransom” is used here, a) it not only has a completely different meaning for the Greeks than for us moderns, but b) also Homer (and Pierre!) take its meaning to an even higher level: The proper/just...

At the beginning, before the camera is rolling, Pierre asks us if anyone completed the homework assignment given last Friday. No one has, although Bradley has some notes he took when he tried, and we start from there. Study Materials We read from the Fitzgerald translation of the Iliad. A copy of...

And I had a thought come into my head that they hid themselves behind clouds as not to be seen. Don's Dream It was an office-type setting. There were three people...

Synopsis This is the third part in a very loose/informal "series" of discussions on Carl Jung's Psychology and Alchemy . Alchemy as essentially philosophy carried on in disguise so as to survive under the repression of the Church. Self: the Philosopher's Stone. Part One could be considered our Saturday coffee talk on Hume, Jung, Bohm, and Cause , in which Jung was one of several discussed. Part Two was an impromptu talk Pierre gave last week when he was filling in for JulieH on giving...

Synopsis Pierre starts us back into Homer's Iliad again. He begins by asking what it is we are looking for in the Iliad? And why did it gain the status among the Greeks of a sacred scripture? He has us think about focusing on the turn-about of Achilles, the roles of gods and men, and the significance, if any, of the idea of self, myself, selves, etc. It is on this last point that we spend most of the session, collecting all the quotes (from the Balboa translation) where self ('αυτο') is...

Synopsis A continuation of last week . Pierre has us go over 2 or 3 quotes in Book 1 of Homer's Iliad, where 'auto' (Self) and 'logos' are used in the Homeric Greek, and asks us to consider: Do these quotes raise the level of reflection and add another dimension to the work?

Synopsis Per Barbara's suggestion, Pierre lays out a powerful meditation one can do, based on an analogy in Plato's Republic and element 148 of Proclus' Elements of Theology . Later he shows the similarity of this analogical meditation to a meditation he has before (many times) suggested, what we have sometimes called the “Xenophanes meditation”, (“What is seeing, hearing, and thinking?”, which is an adaptation of the qctual quote from a fragment from Xenophanes, “It is the whole that...

And I said I was half done. I have about 14 more quotes to go. He looked at me. I said I had to redo the first 14 because I wasn't doing it the right way to see it. I said I had 14 more to go. Not 14 but 10 more to go. About half-way to go. He walked away and looked back in a certain look that I thought he wasn't...
